Reason for Reading: next in the series. RIP III Challenge.
It was an age of tragic mistakes.
Comments: I've come this far in this series that I've realized that each 3 books contain a story arc within the main plot of the series. This makes Book 7 the start of a new adventure for Darren, this time he and his companions, are on a quest to kill the Lord of the Vampaneze before he becomes fully blooded. This will make no sense to anyone who hasn't read the series but it's all I can say without giving away spoilers of previous books.
New characters are introduced in this book which I loved, especially the witch, Evanna. Darren Shan keeps these books fresh by adding new characters throughout the series. Plus we also see all the favourite characters who have travelled through each successive book. I was thrilled when Darren and Mr. Crepsley made a return visit to the Cirque du Freak in this book. I've been hoping that would happen. It was a brief visit but my desire was sated. Is there a YA vampire series out there any better than this one? I highly doubt it! If you like vampire books,run, don't walk, and get yourself a copy of the first book Cirque du Freak (A Living Nightmare) immediately.
